I come to You today with a humble and contrite heart, seeking Your guidance and protection as I undergo this surgery. Lord, You are the great physician and healer, and I trust in Your sovereign care for my life.
I ask for Your wisdom and discernment for the doctors and nurses who will be performing the surgery. Give them skill and precision in their work, and protect them from harm as they care for me.
I pray for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery, Lord. I ask for Your grace to sustain me through this time of physical weakness and discomfort. Help me to trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, even when I don’t understand Your ways.
I pray that this experience will draw me closer to You and help me to rely on You more fully. I pray that Your love and peace will surround me and bring comfort to my mind and body.
I offer up this prayer in the powerful name of Jesus, my Savior. Amen.

Psalm 103:2-3 ESV
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
James 5:14-15 ESV
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
